Oseco’s Industry Best Rupture Discs at The Chem Show

Broken Arrow, Okla. (October 5, 2011) – Oseco will feature its highly efficient FAS (Forward Acting Scored) and PRO+ (Precision Reverse Operating) rupture discs at The Chem Show, booth 729. The show takes place November 1-3 at the Javits Center (New York, N.Y.).

The FAS and PRO+ have the industry’s best KR values, a measurement used to determine the frictional flow loss through a rupture disc and holder. The FAS has the lowest available KR of any forward acting rupture disc, and PRO+ offers a best-in-class KR for reverse buckling discs. The low KR values of the two discs guarantee an efficient flow, less pressure drop and faster emergency pressure relief. Both discs are commonly used for safety relief valve isolation and are designed to be non-fragmenting.

Oseco’s New SRC Rupture Disc Improves Pressurized Railcar Safety

Scored railcar disc won’t leak at high pressures where traditional composite discs fail

Broken Arrow, Okla. (February 16, 2010) – Pressurized rail cars are at constant risk of explosion due to improper or changing pressurization.  Offering an improvement over traditional, failure prone composite discs, Oseco has released the new SRC (scored railcar) rupture disc.  The SRC meets AAR standards and protects against rail car explosions.

The SRC is a precision scored disc, which fits standard threaded or bolted railcar safety vents.  The disc will burst and safely equalize pressure if the car’s internal pressure ever builds or drops to a dangerous level, eliminating the danger of explosion.

Composite discs traditionally used by pressurized tank car users and manufacturers utilize a PTFE Teflon sealing membrane, which is susceptible to damage and pinholes that can cause leaks.  Available in Inconel or Stainless Steel for corrosive applications, the SRC disc features a solid metal design that completely eliminates the fragile PTFE seal and locks out damage-causing foreign materials, even when subjected to constant pressure for extended periods.
